SCREAMBOX at Fantastic Fest: 1988 Home Invasion Slasher ‘Door’ and Ultra Gory Japanese Anthology ‘Visitors’!

SCREAMBOX is once again heading to Fantastic Fest (September 21 – 28), bringing two brand new Japanese horror films that are going to absolutely blow your collective minds.

The first is Door, an extremely rare home invasion slasher movie from 1988 that has never been screened outside of Japan and has just been remastered. The final 20 minutes are bonkers!

In the film…

“A lonely housewife is held hostage in her own apartment by an increasingly deranged door-to-door salesman in this forgotten home invasion masterpiece.”

Directed by Banmei Takahashi, the story behind Door is extremely interesting.

Many of you may remember Director’s Company, a Japanese production company from 1982-1992 that was made up of many legends of Japanese cinema including Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Sogo Ishii, Shinji Somai, and others.

They made many amazing Japanese films but also broke ground for genre cinema in Japan including the cult classic Evil Dead Trap. Before Evil Dead Trap they made the first Giallo film in Japan… Door. Interestingly, Kiyoshi Kurosawa directed the film’s sequel!

Here’s the trailer…


In addition, SCREAMBOX and Midnight Pulp are presenting Visitors (the Complete Edition), Kenichi Ugana‘s Japanese anthology movie that opens with one of the goriest shorts we’ve ever seen.

In the 60-minute splatterfest…

“A rock ‘n’ roll band drop in unannounced on a friend and find themselves plummeting into a wackadoo reverie of monsters and mayhem.”

The North American rights acquisition deal was handled by Adam Torel of Third Window Films and Selin Kilic of Cineverse.

SCREAMBOX and Midnight Pulp will release later this year.
